The captain has been recognised as the Best Domestic Player, whilst the forward has claimed a prize following his involvement in five Olympic Games.

Sergio Llull and Rudy Fernández have been recognised by the panel of the 3rd Spanish Basketball Awards, which is to be held in Gran Canaria on 14 August. The Real Madrid captain has been crowned in the Best Domestic Player category, whilst the small forward has been recognised in the Special Awards category for equalling the record-holding five appearances at the Olympic Games 

The panel notes that captain Llull led Real Madrid to a stellar season, in which, despite the many setbacks along the way, the team reached the four finals and captured two trophies: the league and the Spanish Super Cup. Meanwhile, Rudy drew level with Navarro and Gasol as the Spanish player to have competed in the most Olympic Games (five). Carmelo Cabrera, a madridista and Spanish basketball legend, will also receive an award at the ceremony to recognise his career and the revolutionary impact he had on the sport thanks to his style of play.
